Hot on the heels of the their recent single ‘Self Control’, the Stockholm based alternative electro poppers release their new single ‘Open Fire’ on 8th December through Fiction Records. ‘Open Fire’ is the second single to be taken from Kate Boy’s much anticipated debut album, set for release through Fiction Records early next year.
Evolving their sound with the new single, Kate Boy switch gears as the song kicks off with a punchy, off beat, underlying bassline that carrries throughout the track. As the song builds Kate Boy’s unique production comes into its own as the chorus explodes into a mixing pot of layered synths and dynamic beats, topped with Kate’s melodic chants. ‘Open Fire’ conjures listeners into a frenzy as the track builds and swirls with distinctive force.
Kate Boy are a Stockholm based trio (Kate Akhurst, Hampus Nordgren and Markus Dextegen) who have been making waves across the globe, armed with their effortlessly catchy electronic beats and sultry vocal hooks. After recently signing to Fiction Records earlier this year Kate Boy have been in the studio writing and recording their self-produced debut album, following up on their critically acclaimed tracks ‘Northern Lights’, ‘The Way We Are’ and ‘In Your Eyes’ which received praise from the likes of SPIN, V Magazine, Vogue and Pitchfork.
Kate Boy will be hitting the road in November with a string of shows across the UK, culminating at London’s XOYO on 12th November – due to extra demand Kate Boy have added shows in Birmingham and Bristol to their forthcoming tour. Kate Boy bring their music to stratospheric heights in a live environment – following a recent sold out show at The Lexington in London and a set at Secret Garden Party this summer these shows are set to be some of the hottest shows in town this autumn.
